Genie’s Steel-Cut Oats and Cherries

My friend introduced me to this breakfast treat in Tennessee some years ago, and I’m glad she did. It gets a nice chewy texture from both oats and cherries, and it tastes delicious.

Rump Roast

This is my mom’s version of roast beef. Technically, it’s a pot roast, because it’s cooked with a lid on it and allowed to steam in its own juices. But it doesn’t come out like a pot roast, i.e., wet and slow-cooked till falling apart. It’s more roast-y, with a roast meat texture and consistency. And it’s very, very tasty.

Cookstove Quesadillas

This is the first time I’ve made quesadillas since we installed the Kitchen Queen, having spent the interim trying to push her limits (haven’t yet). We used to have them at least once a week… before the Queen stole my heart, and hijacked my imagination.
